Re: AMD64 - why the fuss?
AMD CPU's also have the HyperTransport Links.
Anyway, I don't know why there are so many doubters. AMD shouldn't have to prove themselves. Their efficiency speaks for itself. Intel CPU's are just jokes; I could never imagine buying one, knowing that I've paid extra for a CPU which consumes far too much energy with lower performance in most tasks.
